About this deal

Lee and Ditko changed the face of comics with Spider-Man and this complete Ditko run is phenomenal. Everything is there from the beginning, starting with the concise and perfect origin story then building up Pete and his world, the fantastic supporting cast, the pathos and teenage spirit, the (to me) best rogues gallery in the history of comics and the sheer vibrant joy. It's all right off the bat. Ano, forma se ještě trochu hledá, co se týče vztahu text x obraz, a tak dochází k humorným případům, kdy situace zjevná z panelu bývá okomentována pro sichr monologem i vypravěčem.

What else was great? Well the art naturally. Steve Ditko's work here is incredible. Ditko didn't go for realism, but rather a unique and inimitable style. Nowhere, before or since (sorry McFarland) was Spidey's unnatural athleticism captured so completely. Simply wonderful. On the subject of the art, I found Steve Ditko's classic art style to be simple yet never dull. I consider the mark of a great comic book or graphic novel to be one whose art is never poor enough to detract from the story being told, nor goes so overboard as to derail the reader's attention from the story at hand. Steve Ditko's art never infringed on either precept, which is something I cannot say for newer comics. Today, you will either find most comics to be bland and colorless to the point of losing all personality, or too stylized and out of touch with the characters of the comic (or just plain ugly). I like my comics, especially for Spider-Man, to be colorful and vibrant yet not overly busy, and Ditko achieved this balance beautifully. His artwork set the precedent for how Spider-Man should generally look and flow in comics, and for that he has my admiration.You need this book, in other words, if you really want to have a kid to grasp the complexities and nuances of one of the greatest superhero archetypes we still have today. I hope to, myself, some day.

The Amazing Spider-Man never got better than this - ASM 1-38, Amazing Fantasy 15, and Annuals 1 & 2. This represents the entire Stan Lee/Steve Ditko run - a watershed of popular culture and arguably the most important development of "heroes in tights" since Superman's debut in 1938's Action Comics #1. The best part of this issue is the cover. The Molten Man will more interesting much later, but right now, he’s just a hood. The Liz Allan sections humanize her right as she leaves the book for awhile, aside from a minor appearance in a few issues. The graduation is fine, but brief. It’s important, but not really for the villain stuff.

Conway's creation of the Punisher and the misunderstanding of the character is something Conway still tries to make clear (he's not a hero, but a villain and shouldn't be idolized.) I also liked Man-Wolf because it really adds another layer of complexity to Jonah. Not all of Conway's creations are noteworthy though. I think the Tarantula was pretty lame and I'm still not sure how he walks with giant needles on the front of his boots. Je zvláštní porovnávat Ditkovu kresbu na začátku a na konci a stejně tak i progres v Parkerově osobním životě, přihlédneme li, že se dost mluví o tom, jak Lee všechny kreslíře tlačil k tomu, aby kreslili víc jako Kirby a speciálně po Ditkovi požadoval, aby trochu polidštil všechny ty nepříjemné lidi v Parkerově okolí, a tak k zásadním změnám začalo docházet dlouho před Ditkovým odchodem.

Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus - Volume 1 (New Printing)

Of course, no character is more of a fan-favorite than Peter Parker – Spider-Man – himself. Reading his earliest comic book exploits was truly an enjoyable experience for me considering that, up until this point, my experiences with the character came from all other forms of media except comic books. These old comics from the 1960s were as new to me as the day they were first printed, giving me a personally unique experience with Spider-Man even in this day and age, one that people who are already familiar with the comics may unfortunately miss out on when perusing this omnibus. One of the best things about this massive collection was how it made me feel like I was meeting Spider-Man for the first time all over again, and it has made me eager to read more!In this omnibus, the reader is not only introduced to Spider-Man/Peter Parker but a supporting cast including Peter's Aunt May and Uncle Ben (who taught Peter an important lesson with those now iconic words: "With great power, there must also come great responsibility."), Flash Thompson, J. Jonah Jameson, Gwen Stacy, as well as some of Spider-Man's most well-known villains such as the Vulture, Doctor Octopus, Electro, Kraven the Hunter and the Green Goblin.
